Sibling adventures

I'm so excited that my insides could burst! One of my little brothers is here visiting and though his visit will be brief, I know we are going to cram as much fun as humanly possible into these next 2.5 days! Its sort of amazing to me how God fits families together. I look at my mom, dad, and all 3 brothers and feel nothing but heart just sighs because God blessed me with best friends and family all in one. Don't get me wrong, we have plenty of dysfunction-we put the fun back in dysfunctional afterall-but what family doesn't, right!?

I am pretty sure this is going to be a weekend with little sleep-but so worth the memories about to be made!

Thanks for all the advice on how to be a good hostess. I'm thankful my brother was tired enough after his travels that he hasn't had time to notice if I've been a good one or not~haha~

Happy Friday!

the greatest love story of all time!

After going home and having one of the best weekends of my life celebrating my best friends getting married,I am in 'super sappy' mode (yeah, even more than normal!) These faucet eyes of mine just keep on leaking!  I love love and I love my friends so I suppose these are good things to cry happy tears over. ANYWAYS,weddings always get me in that lovey dovey-ooshey gooshey-happily ever after mood! BUT if you are single its easy to quickly turn that excited feeling into a pity party. Pity party for one (no thanks!) and I found myself doing just that on my plane ride back. The clouds and sun set were pretty amazing during my flight when it dawned on me....God gives us reminders of His love for us in so many ways and I am already part of one of the greatest love stories of all time--and so are YOU- the love story between us and God. And that's not a fleeting love-that's not a dressed up for special occasion-looks good in pictures love. That's an every minute of every day of your entire life love!

The greatest love story of all time---and you are already playing a leading role in it!

Hope you have a love filled day and are priceless to God

Hey Everyone!

What's going on? I'm Lauren and you can hear me overnights on K-LOVE! I’m a fairly simple person (depending on what your definition of ‘simple’ is!) and being the only girl out of 4 kids I was doomed to be super girly from the get go. I love the color pink, I love my family and friends, I love love, and I love reasons to celebrate each day! I’m chasing after God with everything in me and I’m loving the journey. “’For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the LORD, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future” (Jeremiah 29:11).

Leave me some love and let me know about you!
